Winter/2024 winners of LA Independent Women Film Awards

The latest Annual Women's Lens screening at the Fine Arts Theatre of Beverly Hills was a very successful event which ended on January 28th with screening of the finalists of the year at the iconic cinema in LA. Every year, the committee of the fest nominates the finalists of the year for cinema screenings while the rest of the nominees are offered online and digital promotions and screenings through LA Independent Women.



The seasonal IMDb qualifying competition of the fest is also a very popular event which brings international and American women in film together in order to compete in various sections of the festival. The winners of the Winter/2024 were proudly announced by the team on February 4th and it is our pleasure to share the winners through LA Independent Women Film magazine. The mission of the festival is designed to help create a platform for talented female artists to be recognized for their projects and more importantly, get them the industry exposure to help sustain their craft for many years to come.
